In 2014, it closed to undergo a significant renovation project to align it once again with some of Europe's key luxury hotels.
The 279-room property, located opposite the city's historic Central Railway Station, reopened this summer as a 'Curio - A Collection by Hilton' hotel, marking the brand's launch into Europe.
Care was taken to preserve the Reichshof's 20th-century heritage, which is embodied in the hotel's centrepiece, the Restaurant Slowman, and the restored, 100-year-old Bar 1910, where guests can find a selection of international whiskies among many other spirits.
In addition to 270 guestrooms, there are six Junior Suites and three One Bedroom Suites, which come with their own separate living rooms where sparkling wine rests on ice, awaiting the arrival of the next guest.
Restaurant Slowman's a la carte menu is complemented by the kitchen's homemade sushi and freshly made deserts, which, on a Saturday night, can be enjoyed alongside live entertainment.
The hotel's restoration programme was extended to the 550m2 of meeting space, which can hold conferences and meetings for up to 250 delegates. Smaller groups of between five and 18 can be hosted in one of four meeting rooms, while gala dinners for 80 delegates can be accommodated in the Hans Albers conference room.
